Also Amazon's delivery was like lightning.
The significance of the date is explained in the introduction to each Great Continental Railway Journeys No one could know that shortly our way of life was about to change forever The era of the de-luxe train ceased when war broke out in 1914. After the war some trains were re-routed to avoid Germany eg Simplon Orient Arlberg Orient. Then just as things were improving and Europe was climbing out of recession there was a second world war from which luxury train travel never fully recovered not helped by the advent of jet travel package tours etc. In the end operators like SNCF just wanted to get rid of slow moving trains with aged rolling stock eg D262 Orient Express Night Ferry which got in the way of TGVs.
Now trains are functional and soulless.
